Hello eds, any interest in Luca torreira of Sampdoria from Liverpool?


{Ed002's Note - Everton were the Merseyside team who enquired about Lucas Torreira - not Liverpool.}

1.) 22 Feb 2018 15:32:15
Is he considered by Napoli as a replacement for Jorginho?

2.) 23 Feb 2018 05:00:11
I think Luca torriera is the kante of Serie A. Beastly little dynamite of a player. But of course as Ed002 has cleared it was everton and not us who enquired.
Would love him at LFC though.



05 Dec 2017 06:45:28
hi eds,
anything in the aubameyang rumours?
reading reports LFC could well sell studger, origi and ings and go for him?
if we sell all three doesn't sound bad but his wages might probably cut off any deal.


{Ed002's Note - Dortmund are willing to let Aubameyangadingdong go as they are sick of the backage. He has been offered to a couple of clubs and Liverpool might well be interested - but someone would need to make way from the first team - not the players you have listed. It is reasonable that Ings could get a loan and Origi may well want to stay in Germany in the summer. Aubameyangadingdong has been offered to an English side and an Italian side already. The Italian side see the price as high for the risk of disruption, and they are currently in turmoil. The English side is looking at someone else initially. Sturridge I don't know. But none of these are really starters. I would not rule it out but I am not aware of any approach.}

1.) 05 Dec 2017 10:33:21
So sell three hard working squad players and sign a disruptive flake who will want to start ahead of our front 3? And that too for an obscene amount of money? No chance unless Salah leaves in the summer.

2.) 05 Dec 2017 10:36:32
Ed when you say someone would need to leave mate I take it would have to be the likes of Firmino, Couts, Mane etc?

{Ed002's Note - He would want to be a starter - so go figure.}

3.) 05 Dec 2017 10:48:27
A 4-2-3-1 with Mane, Firmino and Salah behind Aubameyang would be incredible. Don’t think it would be my priority though as the defence must be our first thought and with the goals we’re scoring is it really worth the disruption?

4.) 05 Dec 2017 11:20:29
If our "Transfer Committee" have half a brain between them they'll leave well alone but I'm not sure they have the half of a brain.

5.) 05 Dec 2017 11:57:40
Only way I’d see it possible for PEA to be in the first team would be to drop bobby into coutinho role once he’s on that plane to Barcelona.

6.) 05 Dec 2017 12:00:19
Yeah right. wasnt Sadio Mane also seen as disruptive? He had prior disciplinary issue with Koeman. Looks what happen. We are not talking about some random striker. We are talking about most prolific striker last season in whole Europe. He is in bracket Lewandowski, Suarez, Kane. So please wise up and talk sense when you guys write as if he is another striker like Balloteli.

7.) 05 Dec 2017 12:29:42
There is a difference between a player who is disruptive because he doesn't fully apply himself and it gets on people's nerves, and one who just sacks off full games cause he wants to go out on the lash with his mates. He is more of a problem for squads than balotelli is, that's why he's discussed like balotelli by anyone who knows the first thing about him.

8.) 05 Dec 2017 13:37:36
Bottom line is klopp knows him. If he wants to sign him he will have confidence that can manage any issues and find a place for him in the starting 11. If he is a disruptive force surely Klopp will let it be known to the transfer folks to stay away. Nothing to worry about at all folks.

9.) 05 Dec 2017 13:46:31
Ed002 mate. which clubs (to the best of your knowledge) are currently showing any interest in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang?

{Ed002's Note - See above - I have said that they have spoken to a couple of clubs - and that is it at the moment.}

10.) 05 Dec 2017 14:04:56
I was at the recent Dortmund v Bayern game and kept a beady eye on Aubameyang as i was keen to see how good he was. What a let down. He was a passenger for the whole game and did nothing, with Robben stealing the show. Admittedly, this is a single game, against Bayern and i had been sampling the local beers for most of the day, but from that showing, i wouldn't want him. On a side note, 83,503 people singing you'll never walk alone is truly a wonderful experience. especially with beer.

11.) 05 Dec 2017 18:28:20
Ed is there any truth that where looking for a striker Bec firmino is guna play coutino role when he leaves?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Liverpool looking for strikers in January. The club is doing just great going forward and I doubt even Klopp would be stupid enough to screw that up right now.}

12.) 05 Dec 2017 19:10:54
Thanks Ed way I’d read it seemed more about summer plans when coutino leaves.

{Ed002's Note - I am pretty certain Liverpool are not making plans like that right now.}

13.) 06 Dec 2017 01:43:15
Am I wrong to think this would be a poor move for the club?



12 Aug 2017 03:27:35
Hi Ed's, a very good morning.
Would Barcelona be willing to include sergi Roberto in a deal for pipco? Is he on the surplus list? More importantly would the forces at liverpool be interested in player+cash kind of deal?
Thank-you for you kindness in this unkind transfer window.


{Ed002's Note - He is not on the surplus list but the clubs interested in him have had little luck getting Barcelona to talk. Liverpool has shown no interest to date.}

1.) 12 Aug 2017 09:15:07
Pipe dream unfortunately. After Messi, Suarez, Busquets, Iniesta, Pique and Alba I would say Roberto is probably the next best they have. He is a really classy midfielder and not a bad right back either.

2.) 12 Aug 2017 09:29:44
I get a feeling that any player on Barca's surplus list to be included in a deal would be an above average yet nothing special player, which makes the whole idea of it unappealing.

3.) 12 Aug 2017 09:30:45
That team is slim pickings IMO apart from top two and pique.
Maybe Gomes and Ter Stegen + 80million and then we could maybe talk.

I also find it hard to believe that they wouldn't come back.
Real probably will if not as Phil is knocking on the door of best in CAM in world for me. A season in champions league and people start to take seriously.

Question for Ed02: Have Liverpool been aggressive enough in pursuit of players this transfer window? Do you think if we'd have put money where our mouth is we could've got things do for targets?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has gone about the transfers in the entirely wrong way - but it is nothing about money.}

4.) 12 Aug 2017 10:32:18
Did I just read "has Liverpool been aggressive enough this window? "
Only way they could have been more aggressive is if VVD and NK where bundled into the boot of Klopps BMW and driven to Melwood.

{Ed002's Note - He has a KR200 - there is only room for one of them. }

5.) 12 Aug 2017 10:41:17
Should have looked outside the club for a sporting director promoting from within where a culture of incompetance has been prevelant for years just breeds more err incompetance . we have seen more of the same this transfer window. they should burn that rick parry guide to doing transfers.

6.) 12 Aug 2017 10:46:39
Why majorly weaken our team selling a player with years of contract when we can keep him, get a good year out of him and sell him for AT LEAST the same price judging by how transfers are rising year by year. its the same as Liepzig (why have no want or need to sell the player and we don't need the money) .

7.) 12 Aug 2017 13:38:16
8;minutes and our defence exposed. We are such a good team, something really needs to be done with our defence. Vvd as soon as. It'll be embarrassing but not as embarrassing as losing to mediocre teams.

8.) 12 Aug 2017 14:03:41
Ed, sorry couldn't find new post icon. Any idea why we didn't move for Joe Hart? It seems mad as we were the only team at the top he could've gone to bar city. He is surely an upgrade on what we currently have.

{Ed001's Note - because he is crap.}

9.) 12 Aug 2017 14:19:53
Totally agree Eds. The only reason he doesn't get called out on his mistakes is 'cause he's English.

10.) 12 Aug 2017 14:22:12
Didn't Torinos owner come out and say he didn't expect an England goalkeeper to make so many mistakes? Says it all really.

11.) 12 Aug 2017 14:44:44
Fair enough guys. I have to disagree with Steve wonder, England gks have had a hard time over last ten years, Carson Robinson and the other fella all made one mistake and we're dropped forever. I have always felt Hart was over rated but rest of country seemed to disagree. Until the euros where he was crap. What Hart does well is organise and control defence and I feel that is what we are lacking. But I buy that he has lost it.

12.) 12 Aug 2017 17:41:24
Nah it seems like he does superred but he just shouts loudly. Literally I think that is his only trick. Shouting and chest thumping.

13.) 12 Aug 2017 19:09:14
Sergi roberto is such a tidy passer, If we were to take him i would want him in CM, not being put as a rb like Barcelona shifted him out. Would still rather keep couts though.

14.) 12 Aug 2017 20:17:49
Dear Jurgen. we're going to take your star player and you can have anyone off our surplus list.

Yeh right!

15.) 12 Aug 2017 22:37:01
Under FSG, we haven't taken any surplus players as part of big money transfers out. I don't know if FSG think the supporters see such a scenario as Liverpool accepting cast-offs, but the sale of Torres, Sterling and Suarez didn't bring back any players from Chelsea, Man City or Barcelona.

I suspect it will be the case this time too. Why should Liverpool buy players who we don't need?

16.) 13 Aug 2017 07:04:17
@ superred91

losing to mediocre teams?

Last time I checked 3-3 was not a losing score line.

17.) 13 Aug 2017 15:28:23
Red, it sure felt like it was a loss .

18.) 13 Aug 2017 16:01:52
Fair point resend but we were losing 2.1 when I wrote that post and wasn't necessarily talking about watford. Was talking about defence in general.

Yeah, again I thought there were tonnes of positives from watford game.

19.) 14 Aug 2017 14:37:46
If Barcelona want coutinio and they want to offer a player or two in the deal then it has to be one of their top players. Next time they offer rahifina we should send em markovic in no 10 shirt. Don't think the part exchange is going to happen is it? Just psper talk. The first two offers were cash.

I think if we were to do a swap it has to be iniesta. If it truly is a iniesta replacement (pc) then we'll take the replaced player. The fact is, they just want the world's best south America players.



01 Jun 2017 11:02:35
So Mr. Peter moore is the new CEO.
Does it mean we can expect some Transfers FIFA style? I'd buy bale, one future player that goes 97 and one bonucci as i and pretty sure everyone else does when starting with a new FIFA season :P.


1.) 01 Jun 2017 14:13:53
I think that spending large amounts of money on a player has become unfashionable in many fans' eyes. Notably, clubs like City, PSG and the Chinese teams (in particular) are not well-respected amongst football supporters, and as such, a lot would like to see disassociation from these teams in the way that their club conducts its transfer business.

Add to that, there is a shared opinion now that there's something quite noble about spending less money on a player who turns out to be a world beater. Solanke is a perfect example, if he turns out to be a "30 goal a season striker" a lot of fans will respect the fact he cost not a lot and will want their club to do the same. At least that's how I see it. So with regard to Salah, a lot of supporters will be thinking there is some rough diamond out there, who is younger and cheaper. It's a no win situation, because if a club only buys cheap players and those players do not perform, the fans get on the owner's back.



29 Jun 2015 04:49:45
Have city given up on sterling eds? i mean they could buy delph or probably any player they want if it was English quota they were looking at? it has gone rather quiet.


{Ed001's Note - no.}

1.) 29 Jun 2015 09:22:36
We'll probably hear more after July 1st. That date seems to be getting banded about a bit on here for FFP reasons or something.

2.) 29 Jun 2015 10:44:52
What has Delph got to do with Sterling? Just because he's English? I'd say they'd prefer players that are actually good though, they don't need more Rodwells & Sinclairs.

5 pages of banter and not a single post on firminos mma style super flying kicks for celebration🤗. And I think mane too tried it behind firminos and failed miserably 😂

He is most definitely the king of celebrations. He is as Brazilian as one can get.
Btw that kick is a signature from UFC by Anderson Silva. Yep u guessed it right another Brazilian.


1.) 15 Feb 2018 16:37:28
I posted about it. His celebrations are just fantastic 😂.

2.) 15 Feb 2018 19:26:20
Even better was Mane copying its, or trying to.

3.) 15 Feb 2018 19:43:00
Pak Red, I noticed manes attempt to copy him, hilarious 😂😂.

4.) 15 Feb 2018 19:03:15
Mane always copies the celebrations, he's like a kid with his older brothers!



21 Jan 2018 07:19:07
What if klopp starts migs on Monday? :P


1.) 21 Jan 2018 07:35:51
He’s already come out and said Jarius is starting.

2.) 21 Jan 2018 08:22:05
Does Mignolet now start CL and cup games as no 2 🙈.

3.) 21 Jan 2018 11:07:17
Hope not Jayden.



18 Jan 2018 10:53:22
How about we try to get ozil as coutinho replacement in summer on free transfer.
I mean if Klopp can motivate him to play like we know how he can he might be a good alternative. i certainly feel so. Wages can be a problem but i think anything around 250K a week is a great deal.
i think with so many pacy players around him he would work.
yea work rate might be a problem he won't track back much but i still think it can work.


1.) 18 Jan 2018 11:13:54
Make Ozil our highest paid player? No thanks.

2.) 18 Jan 2018 11:15:17
I was shocked when presented with his work rate stats yesterday. He did over 10k in 18 of 20 games he played yet Sanchez who I always thought of as a player who ran socks off had only managed that on 2 or 3 occasion in same amount of games! I feel at times his effortless style makes him look far more lazy than actually is. If he bought into Klopp style with pace and movement around him I feel he could be brilliant, but can't see it happening in my opinion.

3.) 18 Jan 2018 12:00:06
He is 30 years old and wouldn’t survive Klopp’s high intense set up! Another potential Milner there!

4.) 18 Jan 2018 12:28:05
i understand not being is fan but comparing Ozil to milner is ridiculous.
Ozil is a top top player and i think the one Macca was eluding to in a previous post.

5.) 18 Jan 2018 12:29:15
Comparing Ozil to Milner is pretty hilarious! You do post some gold sometimes Harry.

6.) 18 Jan 2018 12:44:30
Milner; a player who has relied on his running power and energy his entire career?

Ozil; a player who barely breaks into a brisk jog because he is intelligent in his movement and makes the ball do the work?

Ozil has never been reliant on pace, power, acceleration, explosiveness, or stamina. He is a supremely talented player much like David Silva is, who could easily play until he is 35 with very little drop off in quality, if any. In fact, just as Alonso did, Ozil could well get better right up until the day he retires as long as he escapes injury problems similar to what Iniesta and Xavi ran into.

Ozil will probably not be coming to Liverpool though considering our lack of interest!

7.) 18 Jan 2018 13:00:41
Well said MK Scouser, also because if Ozil comes and is instantly the highest paid player at the club, it will probably unsettle the likes of Firmino, Mane, Salah who would all want the same money because they are better players although different players.

8.) 18 Jan 2018 13:01:03
Milner was supposed to replace Gerrard and had a better stat than any other winger in the league. Not only he failed on the flanks, he also flopped in the middle. Thus moving to full back. Coutinho is widely criticized for not tracking back and I can’t believe the same want Ozil! He is 30 and would command a huge wage to finish off his career. No thanks! Let Arsenal have him!

9.) 18 Jan 2018 13:57:37
250k a week reasonable?

10.) 18 Jan 2018 15:45:52
Id take him in a heartbeat. Like firmino, just gets slagged off by people who don't understand what makes an intelligent and effective player. Im still holding out hope that the mystery player is ozil.

11.) 19 Jan 2018 07:32:04
Milner is our highest earner, id gladly change that to ozil. For all those worrying about his salary. He will come for free (may be a sign on bonus) . a player remotely as close to ozil in todays market would cost at least 50 million . Not even getting into money, if ozil wishes he can have any club he wants in the summer.
I think Ozil is one player Klopp can do wonders with. he is intelligent and does cover the ground and Klopp could use him perfectly. A front three of firmino, mane and salah being directed by ozil works for me.



11 Jan 2018 12:12:09
we have hendo, ox, gini, milner and emre in our midfield with lallana also there, so that's six players for 3 positions.
I don't get why people say our midfield is weak.
may be we had a better midfield in masha gerrard and alonso but we have never had this level of depth in our squad ever atleast in the midfield.
Next season we replace emre with Keita, a much better player (if not in Jan) .
I don't get it why people are on a we have a rubbish midfield bandwagon on here. Unless we are selling more mids (say lallana and hendo) i don't see any point in signing more.
infact midfield might just be the last place we need additions in. we need to sign another center half (if we plan on using gomez as RB) and a attacking player to boost the attack. Addition of a good keeper just seals the deal.


{Ed025's Note - but who out of that lot would be creating the chances akshit?..

1.) 11 Jan 2018 12:26:20
That's 6 midfielders full of grit who will press and close down their opponents but do we have anyone with the guile and technique to split open tightly-packed defences?

You could argue the case for Hendo and Lallana but the former is out injured and the latter is recovering from a long-term one. Ox is promising but isn't at the level we need just yet.

Now that Coutinho's gone, who do we have that can beat the low block with defence splitting passes or wonder goals from outside the area?

{Ed025's Note - no one..

2.) 11 Jan 2018 12:38:39
And there's none of them good enough and should be moved on.

3.) 11 Jan 2018 12:39:52
Lallana is in his twilight years and misses 6 months a year injured. Plus he's more of an attacking midfielder.

Henderson has been injured for 3 years now and believe me when i say I've been his biggest defendant. Enough is enough though. After his latest injury, even i have given up on him being a major part of our future. You can't build around a captain who plays 20 games a season on pain killing injections.

Milner is an average midfielder. He was a great winger in his prime, but we bought him just as he started fading.

Wijnaldum had a good first season and then this year has regressed horribly. I think he's proven he's just a decent utility man.

Can is leaving and to be honest, he's been as bad as Wijnaldum for most of this season.

Chamberlain looks to have real potential as a midfielder. Even though i advocated his signing as attacking cover, i didn't expect him to come on so well under Klopp. He's still learning though.

Keita is 22 years old, probably doesn't speak English, and has had a really tough 6 months. For the money he cost, he should hit the ground running though, and be our midfield general for years to come.

I personally think we need a really intelligent player alongside Keita and Ox though. They both have pace, flair, score goals and drive us forward, but I'd like an intricate playmaker who can give us more composure in midfield but one who still works for the team. Ceballos is a good player, but I'm hoping Macca is talking about someone like Koke, Kroos or Silva. Just a proper pass master who can run the show and let Keita and Ox do the dog work they love doing and are so good at ie. Getting about the pitch, pressing, snapping into tackles, flying forward to support the attack, belting back to help the defence. A player like Koke, Kroos or Silva just knits everything together.

4.) 11 Jan 2018 12:40:07
It's not about numbers, it's about quality. I would be thinking 6 mids for 3 positions. Keita, Ox and a new deep midfielder (ideally Rabiot or Parades) as first choice with Hendo, lallana and grujic as backups. Don't get the need for Gini and we could get 20 odd million for him.

5.) 11 Jan 2018 12:49:43
akshit you will prob see what we all mean on Sunday mate when we play city.

Unless Salah or Mane have a top class game we will look pretty average in my opinion. Could get embarrassing if we aren't careful.

6.) 11 Jan 2018 14:07:52
Mk agree 90% but the OX does not score goals. He might get the 7th v Maribor or other goals when the game is won. His Arsenal record is about 1 in 10, probably for England it's the same. He has to improve his final ball and score goals if he wants to stay in the side.

I would say an attacking midfielder in our team should get in the league minimum 8 goals and the same assists in a good season. That is what I expect from Keita. Gini got that last season.

7.) 12 Jan 2018 00:10:12
Mark, can't disagree on historical stats about Ox, but most people (me included) didn't think he could play in the middle. That opinion is changing. So his past record is less important as he's not really been played in the position that most people expect him to play in the future.

Personally, I'm loving his attitude more than anything - his own worst critic. 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. I think he will continue to surprise us (in a good way! ) in seasons to come.



22 Nov 2017 05:15:03
Well i'd be the first on here to say well played boys.

during the first half.

That Sevilla final in 2015 was the fall of moreno. Then this season he rose back and again sevilla came and ruined it.
Moral of the story- play robertson against sevilla.
i mean moreno played against soto just saturday. could have been given a bit of rest, same for hendo. , could he have made changes after their first goal bought on milner and can earlier to protect the lead and shore up. I mean moreno could have been sent off for giving the penalty. After half time leading three-nil, knowing sevilla will attack i would have made changes to get more organisation there.
anyways cannot argue the nature of goals conceded was school boyish and can't blame anyone but the players as a unit for that.


1.) 22 Nov 2017 05:44:18
Moreno made mistakes but I think Sevilla deserves credit too. They dominated the second half and the determination to comeback was so high.

2.) 22 Nov 2017 06:08:46
All the more reason, that should have been expected and changes could have been made at half time.

Oh that's great news about TAA, with his delivery and passing TAA could really be asset in the midfield. Yea definitely should proceed with youth.
I was thinking of milner in a mentor role, but well its gametime that he wants and his game time will cut into the minutes of TAA, grujic, ejaria etc. so its almost a no brainer now.
I just wish club has right plans for these players and don't rush into panic buying because they feel they have less mids.


{Ed001's Note - hopefully they do have good plans in place.}

I was thinking in relation to us saving money on a midfielder and investing our resources on a CB and GK, who i think should be a massive priority.
If Milner was leave that leaves us a bit thin in the midfield and then club will look to replace. which might effect other targets? or would that be completely unrelated.


{Ed001's Note - unrelated. The club know about his desires and it is being prepared for. Look at it this way, Trent Alexander-Arnold is being prepared for a midfield role, if Milner stays that will not happen next season as Milner will get the minutes Trent would otherwise get.}

Oh! that is a pity ed, I'd love to keep milner. i do appreciate him as a player. couldn't we convince him?


{Ed001's Note - why would we want to? It is much better for him to go and play elsewhere and we can have someone who isn't costing us £150k a week on the bench. If he had not been at the club, Robertson, for instance, would have got his chance from the bench much sooner.}

16 Mar 2018 05:05:29
Has Milner himself said he wants to play first team and needs more gametime? or is this and assumption here?
If he wants to stay, I'd like to keep Milner for whatever money. For me he is the English guy you want in the dressing room -all fun and high spirits and of course genuine professional. Kind of a silent leader who can lift morale in the room and lift the team on the pitch with and absurd tackle or two. Him and Hendo make a good english duo for us.
PS- i think Milner should grow a Moustache like the one he had a leeds.


{Ed001's Note - Milner has always maintained that he wants more gametime and first team football. It is why he left Man City to join us in the first place.}

I think PSG again failing with CL would mean all realistic clubs who can give equal/ more money to PSG players will have a chance at vooing their players. I assume no top player realistically wants to play in the french league if not for money. So if the madrids, barca, bayerns and manchesters come, it will be hard for PSG to keep their players.
Hell PSG won't be holding on to Neymar for more than a year. so Veratti, Rabiot, Le ceslo and Draxler may well look to move this summer or definitely the next.
However Liverpool is not in the picture. Cannot see any of their top top player leaving a city like paris to move to Merseyside. Moreover i don't see us matching the wages on offer.
As for Ndidi, love the player but foxes will make us sweat out every penny we have for him. I think they won't be selling under 50 million and i'd rather see that money invested in bringing a top keeper and best CB available. i don't want to miss on say someone like Alisson because he was 25 million over our budget.
Dont particularly think midfield is a priority with ox, hendo, keita, gini, grujic and ejaria on the books. That is excluding milner and lallana who i believe will be sold and of course Can who is off. Personally i'd like us to convince Can to stay with us and give milner another season ( he is too good as a utility player, covers multiple positions, sobs about it but does the job)
we 100% need a keeper and center back. Can not overlook those two positions again this summer. we fans should be shouting for it. We cannot go into the next season with same defensive fragility.

But we haven't won the CL. and its still mighty far away, not to mention very tough.
Though all LFC fans believe all teams would be dreading to draw us, i feel other teams would be wanting to draw us just because we are inexperienced at these stages of this competition. We are the only team in the competition that have the ability to shoot themselves in the foot and loose even when we are 2 goals up. I mean i remember people panicking on this site when we won 5-0 to Porto and still weren't confident playing a second string team. All other team bar Roma have been there and done that. We are joining a completely new level and its not going to be easy.

I'd definitely would have loved us beating United and being more pragmatic in our football approach.
As for Klopp he has top start winning these mini battles with tactics. He mostly is found out when the game becomes a tactical battle and is not a straight forward execution of his gameplans.
He has to learn to be more pragmatic inside the 90 mins when his team cannot perform its usual demolition job. Read what's happening in the game and sort it inside the 90 mins.

Are people really watching madrid? they have a poor midfield? ask any madrid fan and he will tell you
Toni kroos- one dimensional can be easily kept quiet and is not an enforcer
Kovacic- best player but does not get his chances and when he does if often out of position on the left
modric- might end up in jail. getting old lost his legs
cabellos- good player can be a pivot linking attack to defence but not an maestro, not at madrid level
Casemiro- scores goals, good at tackling, wayward in possesion, always on a yellow.
llorente- casemiro type but cleverer, doesn't often need to tackle reads the game well but not at real madrid level
Marco asensio- great player but only when attacking, best player in attacking third, cannot influence games from a deeper role
Isco- good at everything but not best at anything. and just like asensio can't influence games from a deeper role.

none of the real madrid mids can win an aerial ball!

Emre can - walks into real madrid midfield. he is a presence, he can run bullishly past players, can defend and tackle, can win defensive headers. is more disciplined and score a worldly.

As Liverpool its in our religion to believe united will loose their next match and vice-a-versa.
